This paper reports the construction a map based on Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphic DNA (AFLP) in Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.). The main purpose of map construction was its application to quantitative traits loci (QTL) mapping for breeding traits economically important in Scots pine breeding program such as tree height and diameter at breast height, number of needles and their length, width, and area. Genomic DNA of needles and haploid megagamethophytes from seeds originating from a... Topics: QTL, Pinus sylvestris, genetic mapping, AFLP

The silviculture of ponderosa pine in the Pacific Northwest States of Washington and Oregon is described. The timber resource, growth, and value are discussed first, followed by damaglng agents, management, and silviculture. Relevant literature is presented along with observations, experlence, and results of unpublished work. Research needs for the future are also proposed. Topics: Silviculture, ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa, Pacific Northwest.
